keynoter from the convention, being, you know, side by side with president obama and praising president obama. do you have any president with what your republican colleague in new jersey did yesterday? >> no. president obama is doing what he had to do. governor christie's doing what he feels he has to do. but i lived and breathes politicked. to show you how i've become obsessed with the tragedy in my district i got a colleague from msnbc asking what governor christie said about president obama. christie attacked him based on past performance. i'm living in a bubble right now. i had no idea. if i had to look at it overall and stark politics it's a short-term benefit to the president. by election day, people will make whatever decision they're going to make, obviously hime hoping for governor romney. president obama's doing what he has to do. it's important for the country. >> thank you so much. thanks for what you're doing for all of your folks and good luck to you. >> thank you. >> in the district. airports are shut down by hurricane sandy but beginning to resume operations slowly. this

to israel, martin, now at brookings. author of "bending history president obama's foreign policy." thanks to both. martin, we've seen this before. we've seen crease fires that hold and that don't hold. first of all, this is an unusual role because we've never seen the muslim brotherhood leader and now president of egypt brokering this and he taking responsibility as hillary clinton was very quick to point out for making sure it does hold. >> i think it's a hugely important development. first of all the cease-fire itself which means a relief for the citizens of gaza and the citizens of israel, which is important in itself and let's hope it holds, but the fact that this was brokered by the united states in the form of the secretary of state on one side and the democratically elected muslim brotherhood president of egypt on the other is a new post-arab spring development which bodes very well because there was always a question, the muslim brotherhood with its anti-israel, anti-western ideology, taking power in egypt whether they would live up to the commitments of the peace treaty and use t
, it was unjustified. to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama. three weeks before an election. >> ambassador rice said today absolutely it was wrong. i don't understand the cia said clearly that information was wrong. and they knew by the 22nd it was wrong. yet, they have not cleared that up with the american people. >> in a statement just now, susan rice admits that the initial information about a protest in benghazi was incorrect, but says no one intended to mislead the public. business as usual, congress is back and picks up just where it left off. stalemated over tax rates and entitlement spending. >> unfortunately, there's one obstacle standing between congress and compromise, grover norquist. for years, norquist has bullied lawmakers willing to put their oath of office or promise to serve constituents ahead of their pledge to this anti-tax zell lot. >> the washington democrats, every dollar that's ever been secured for anything is sacred. every dollar secured for anything is sacred. and they'll defend it to the death regardless of what it means for jobs, or t
bid, president obama hits the philadelphia suburbs campaigning hard for his plan to raise taxes on the rich. >> it's not acceptable to me and i don't think it's acceptable for you for a handful of members of congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage because they don't want rates on upper incomes to go up. that doesn't make sense. >> the speaker was quick to respond. increasing tax rates draws money away from our economy that need to be invested in our economy to put the american people back to work. it's the wrong approach. we're willing to put revenues on the table, closing loopholes and not raising rates. we think it's better for the economy, pure and simple. >> and just now, hitting the jackpot. the small town missouri couple who have had more than their share of hard times win the powerball and with the great american generous spirit are taking it in stride. >> our main concern is our family and, of course, and we have a very large family and then next is our charities we'll be giving to. yeah. it's like how much does a person need? >> and is this man who went to a mary

"washington post," well astime's" senio correspondent michael crowley. we thanks so much. well, our daily fix, what are you looking at, chris cizilla, wh are the lessons youed lookin yo come? >> well, i mean let's talk first about lessons lear andrea. i would say republicans, to blame mitt romney for this loss in some ways misses the point. if you look at the be what you see is republicans have large-scale structural issues with coalition. they mitt romney got 27f hispa barack obama got 71%f hispanic vote nationally. women made up 53% of the electorate. there was an 11-point gender gap for bara o republican - won the white vot by 20 points, but it was, he ump tooentrow, a overall electorate. it's a dangerous game they arei party knew that before this election. if they
and on "meet the press," a top republican suggests for the first time that president obama may have known about the petraeus affair long before the election. >> i'm not sure the president hasn't -- was not told before election day. the attorney general said that the state -- excuse me, the department of justice did not notify the president. but we don't know if the attorney general -- >> that's new. that's news. the president knew before election day? >> i didn't say that. i said i don't know. >> and governor chris christie brings some jersey attitude to weekend update. >> i do not thank any of the stupid mayors who ignored my evacuation orders, you're idiots! and when you ignore me, it makes you look like a real seth meyers. >> oh come on. >> i'm talking here. >> all right. >> i also do not want to thank the reporters that put themselves in danger. you know, by walking into the middle of the hurricane with their cameras. we don't need you to tell us there's a hurricane. we have windows. >> message delivered. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. no cease-fire and at least 30,000 is
to the white house for a summit on the fiscal cliff. in a video released by his campaign an emotional obama thanked his campaign workers in chicago. sn>> >>. >> what you guys have done means that the work i'm doing is approved. i'm really proud of all of you. and -- [ applause ] >> a rare sign of emotion from the president a day after his election. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. let the negotiations begin. house and senate leaders have now staked out their opening positions. now the president will put down his markers. we're only moments from his scheduled first post-election speech at the white house addressing the most urgent crisis of the lame-duck session, the fiscal cliff. without a deal, the congressional budget office now projects that if the tax cuts expire and the budget cuts kick in, unemployment would jump to 9.1% by the end of next year and the nation's economy could slide into another recession. joining me for our daily fix, special panel, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "t
on the deadly attack begin as president obama lashes out at republicans for attacking u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> i knee people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with rockets and mortars for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that was the case, is either a coverup or it is incompetence. >> ahead this hour, one of the republicans calling for a wider probe, new hampshire senator kelly ayotte. and what's going on with the generals? leon panetta orders ethics review. the fbi agent, he's the guy who brought down the millennium bomber. >>> taking out the military leader of hamas and fire from the gaza strip. >> israel will continue to take whatever action is necessary to defend our people. >> we'll talk to michae
on military marriages. >>> celebrating the big 7-0. vice president gets a tweet from the boss, obama not springsteen. >> i'm andrea mitchell in washington. hillary clinton will land in israel within the next few hours and head directly to jerusalem to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the exchange of fire continued today from both sides. joining me now nbc's martin fletcher in tel aviv and ayman mohyeldin in gaza. martin, to you, what are israelis saying about the status of a cease-fire or truce or temporary pause in hostilities to negotiate something more long term? >> yeah. all the talk is of a truce a cease-fire, which is pretty much been announced it will be announced in the arab capitals and gaza. the israelis saying that it is not a done deal. they're saying it's not wrapped up. they say there's still agreements to be worked on and they are waiting to see what they will still be able to achieve in terms of their single most important goal which is that this cease-fire, if it takes place, will not be some sort of quick fix, but a long-term solution to the problem for
and allow them to write what is really the first biography. >>> cliff talks. president obama reaches out to business and labor to rally support for his plan to raise taxes on the rich. are republicans and democrats any closer to making a deal? >> we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. and i think that the vast majority of americans agree with that. the question is, how do you do that? >> we need the republicans to do in 2012 what we did in 2010. we hear the mandate, continue to cut spending. but they have to hear the mandate, real revenues, not this kind of stuff like dynamic scoring. >> let me follow up on that. >>> and paying tribute. the president and the first lady honor the fallen heroes at arlington national cemetery, section 60, dedicated to americans who have died in iraq and afghanistan. >> a proud nation expresses our gratitude, but we do so mindful that no ceremony or parade, no hug or handshake is enough to truly honor that service. for that, we must do more. for that, we must commit this day and every day to serv
against short-range rockets. the promise from president obama for more money for more missile defense against the longer range missiles. they already have patriots there, but obviously some more long-range protection as well. what is iran's read now, seeing that morsi and the islamist party has been the guarantor of this cease-fire? does that create more leverage for egypt and less for iran as the mentor to hamas and gaza? >> well, it does give egypt some influence with hamas. they, of course, have the same muslim brotherhood roots. on the other hand, this has been an opportunity for iran, because iran in some sense has been the arming agent of hamas in the same way they have been the arming agent of hezbollah. and it is also viewed by many as proof that israel only makes concessions in the face of threats of violence, which is very much out of the iranian playing book rather than the playbook of fatah or western countries who would like to see a two-state solution achieved through diplomacy rather than threat of violence. >> do you see the united states and iran getting involved in b
>>> right now on "andrea mitchell reports" campaigning again. president obama urges middle-class voters at the white house to press congress for tax hikes on the rich. >> i can only do it with the help of the american people, tweet using #my 2 k, e-mail, post it on a member of congress's facebook wall. do what it takes to communicate a sense of urgency. >> on the other side of pennsylvania avenue, john boehner says he thinks there is a way to avoid that cliff. >> it's time for the president and democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our country has, but i'm optimistic we can continue to work together to avert this crisis and sooner rather than later. >> and look who's coming to lunch. mitt romney will break bread with the president at the white house tomorrow. >> pledge of allegiance, anti-tax crusader grover norquist warns republicans against breaking their promise. >> it is possible if the republicans lose in such a way they've got their fingerprints on the murder weapon, then you have a problem. bush couldn't run again in '92 successfully because he had
obama and congressional leaders kick off talks to avoid the looming fiscal cliff. >> what folks are looking for and i think all of us agree on this, action. they want to see we are focused on them, not focused on our politics here in washington. >> the framework that i've outlined in our meeting today is consistent with the president's call for a fair and balanced approach. to show our seriousness we put revenue on the table as long as it's accompanied by significant spending cuts. >> i can say on the part of my members that we fully understand that you can't save the country until you have entitlement programs that fit the demographics of the changing america in the coming years. >> the president also had a special message for the speaker. >> tomorrow is speaker boehner's birthday so for those of you who want to wish him a happy birthday, we will -- we're not going to embarrass him with a cake because we didn't know how many candles were needed. >> yeah, right. >> but we want to wish him a happy birthday. >> that's 63 candles and one for good luck. the president did give him a
